Less than two months after launching its Windows Server 2003 operating system, Microsoft has released a security patch to fix a vulnerability that could let malicious sites run damaging code on the server. “The new flaw affects Internet Explorer 6, which ships with Windows Server 2003 as well as with other Microsoft OSes. It is fixed, along with other IE6 flaws, in a cumulative patch released Wednesday. Although the patch is rated “critical” for all other operating systems, it is only “moderate” for Server 2003, according to Microsoft’s system for grading the severity of the vulnerabilities it addresses“.
